Hard Working Class Herles (HWCH),  Ireland’s Annual Showcase Festival and Conference for New Music and Technology returns to the streets and venues of Dublin over three days in October from Thursday October 2nd to Saturday October 4th and this year, HMV Ireland have come on board as the festival's main sponsor.

Over the years, the festival has showcased many of Ireland’s best known acts including Delorentos, The Coronas, Fight Like Apes, Villagers, Lisa O'Neill and Hozier - and the breakthrough act of 2013's.

HWCH is a platform for bands to play not only for captive crowds of true music lovers but local and international music industry professionals in an effort to take them to the next stage of their career.


Hard Working Class Heroes Festival 2014 sees the return of HWCH Tech. The first HWCH Tech took place last year and was a huge success, developing, showcasing, supporting and advising young start-ups the same way HWCH Music does for new aspiring music talent.
